Just logged 40 hours on my 5 and 7 Maverick with foil. And have 21 hour on it in waves. Use the Pintox bar and Wichard and haven’t have any unexpected release on the wichard. I’m pretty happy with that set up right know.

So Rainer published an update to the Pinxto bar to avoid unnecessary releases.

No more wichard needed
No bar connector required any more
No more pre-installation on the harness required
The entire quick release has become a little shorter
Colored flying lines and colored front lines
More compatible with fixed hook AND slider
Test flying for the buddy is now very easy
Extremely short leash

Nice to see that a company is listening and willing to change. Wish they would sell to 🇨🇦, oh well always a bridesmaid

Glad to see he's improved a lot of the faults on this next gen. Wish there was a way to retro the older bars.

Rainer writes in the german oase forum that an upgrade kit will be available.
